David Knight - 1st Nov 2017

Geej Ower has created a perception-challenging video for Naughty Boy & Laura Mvula's Dancing Machine. A statuesque figure is seen alone in the Thames underpass, but they are not initially what they seem to be.

What first appears to be a woman in a glittering shift is revealed to be a male. But the outfit does not define him. It becomes a secondary element to his performance, guiding the viewer through a sensual and emotional journey, the camera stalking his every move.

It is so hypnotic it merges with this cover version of a Jacksons' hit from the 1970s, so throughly reworked by Naughty Boy and Mvula it's virtually unrecognisable from the original.
